Autonomous Security Robots to Help Human Security Professionals Better Secure the United States of America;   All Americans Can Invest in Knightscope Starting Today

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (January 10, 2017) – Knightscope, developer of advanced physical security technologies focused on significantly enhancing US security operations, today announced a transformational plan to bring further advancements in robot security technology with a “mini-IPO” under Regulation A+, allowing anyone the ability to invest in the company’s vision for a safer America. This move marks the next step in the company’s long-term goal to cut crime’s $1 trillion negative economic impact on the U.S in half.


Knightscope first commercialized autonomous technology for real-world applications in 2015 with the K5 Autonomous Data Machine, the first fully autonomous security robot dedicated to outdoor usage 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The K5 has been in action at shopping centers, corporate campuses, data centers, stadiums and hospitals and will soon be deployed at universities, big box retailers, airports, manufacturing plants and distribution facilities. Development of the smaller K3 ensued shortly thereafter as a direct result of customer demand for a complete security solution that would include operations both indoors and outdoors.

Knightscope provides its groundbreaking technologies on a Machine-as-a-Service (MaaS) business model to clients seeking enhanced security operations. This approach greatly reduces the cost, time, complexity and stress of deploying traditional security commodity solutions, while providing ongoing software, firmware and hardware upgrades free-of-charge so that clients can keep pace with latest technology innovations streaming out of Silicon Valley. Knightscope’s autonomous data machines gather data from the environment in real-time and collect information via its interface, the Knightscope Security Operations Center (KSOC). To date, Knightscope’s fleet of robots have operated for more than 100,000 hours and traveled over 50,000 miles collectively across nearly a dozen locations in California.


“What we are doing may seem like something you would see in a sci-fi movie, but I assure you the promise of self-driving security technology is very real in 2017 and has been in operation for quite some time,” says William Santana Li, Chairman and CEO of Knightscope. “As we grow Knightscope, with this new “mini-IPO,” anyone who seeks to invest in this opportunity can help us to make our vision for a safer America a reality.”

Knightscope Believes We Can Be Safer Now


K5 - Security

Knightscope was founded in response to horrific events including the mass shooting at Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon bombing and the impact of 9/11 on our country. The ongoing daily increase in violence globally has intensified the company’s efforts to develop technology to help build safer, engaged communities while significantly reducing costs and reducing crime. That spark has turned into a grander vision to cut the annual $1 trillion negative economic impact of crime on the U.S. in half. The Knightscope team has a singular focus to make our country safer at every turn.


The Opportunity to Invest in Knightscope

Knightscope has raised more than $14M in its Seed, Series A and Series B rounds of financing. With the technology now deployed at clients across California, Knightscope is well positioned to begin to scale further across the United States. Key strategic investors include NTT DOCOMO, Konica Minolta, Flextronics and NetPosa. Knightscope has grown its team to over 30 employees in Silicon Valley. The company seeks to raise up to $20 million through its “mini-IPO” under Regulation A+.
